Collaborating with Sony Pictures Virtual Reality, developers nDreams VR has announced Ghostbusters VR (working title).
Ghostbusters VR is planned to be released exclusively on the Meta Quest 2. As of this writing, there is no release date with this announcement.
Note that this game has nothing to do with the recently announced asymmetrical multiplayer Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed title, which is slated for a release later this year.
Here is the announcement teaser trailer for the game:
It’s worth noting they clearly state the footage in the video is a prerendered cinematic created by the engine. There is no gameplay footage whatsoever shown here.
Here is the description of the game courtesy of the store page by nDream:
Who they gonna call? You! Strap on your proton pack and Meta Quest 2 and step into the world of Ghostbusters in immersive virtual reality. Run your Ghostbusters HQ in a new city, San Francisco, and solve a deep mystery across a new chapter in the Ghostbusters universe. Track, blast, and trap ghosts in gripping encounters by wielding iconic equipment. Go it alone, or as a team with up to three friends in co-op, in an extensive and engrossing campaign. Continue the Ghostbusters’ legacy, protect the city from fiendish ghosts, and experience all the humor and frights from the beloved franchise.
nDreams does have experience under their portfolio in regards to VR titles. One of their more notable projects being Far Cry 3: Dive into Insanity in collaboration with Ubisoft. So there is hope that the game could be promising despite the lack of gameplay footage thus far.
What do you think of this announcement? Are there any users of VR who are fans of the popular ghost busting franchise?
